'Let him arrest me': Former Trump aide Sam Nunberg called before Mueller grand jury — but refuses to go

Onetime Trump campaign aide Sam Nunberg has been subpoenaed to testify before a grand jury by special counsel Robert Mueller — but is refusing to make the appearance and risking arrest to do so.

"Let him arrest me," Nunberg told the Washington Post Monday. "Mr. Mueller should understand I am not going in on Friday."

The ex-aide forwarded Mueller's email to the Post, which included information requests about recently-resigned White House communications director Hope Hicks, former Trump campaign chairman Steve Bannon and former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski, the president's personal lawyer Michael Cohen and Donald Trump's adviser Roger Stone.

Nunberg reportedly plans on going on Bloomberg TV to tear the subpoena up live on television.

Nunberg's interview with the Post came on the heels of another with MSNBC's Chuck Todd, where he said Trump's adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner is a "weak link" in the White House, and accused him of doing "nefarious things." He followed up today's announcement with a rambling 20-minute phone interview with MSNBC host Katy Tur where he said he believes the special counsel may "have something" on the president.

Earlier this year, the former aide also blasted Trump by calling him an "idiot" and a "complete pain in the ass to work for" during yet another MSNBC interview.
